5.0 out of 5 stars Succeeding On Your Primary PGCE, 19 Aug. 2011

This review is from: Succeeding on your Primary PGCE (Paperback)
This book is a short and sweet, but a highly informative, human and helpful introduction to the Primary PGCE course, which I would say is essential reading for anyone taking up- or thinking of taking up- teaching as a profession.

The book's great in outlining details about expectations of student teachers in classes and on placements, there is a wonderful chapter to help you decide if teaching really is for you, and great insight in how to prepare and achieve during this intensive postgraduate course.

There's not really a lot else I can say- the book is short and sweet, and so shall be this review!

But I do highly recommend this book- it actually put my mind at ease prior to the course, and has geared me up to take on the challenges I face with my PGCE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful for PGCE students!, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm starting a PGCE in September so wanted a text which would introduce me to the course. This book is very useful- it is written in neat chapters and will continue to be useful throughout my year. There is a section on how to prepare before the course starts and once your on the course, different chapters about what to expect. I'm glad I brought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Starting Point, 18 April 2011
This review is from: Succeeding on your Primary PGCE (Paperback)
This book appears to be a great starting point for preparing yourself for the year ahead. I have 5 months to get organized and I truly didn't know where to begin, this book has put me on track. I've picked out the further reading that interests me and have made a study plan with reading journals (a tip from the book). I will refer back to my journals for quick referencing when the topics arise in seminars. I was particularly interested in the tips on observations; I work in a school and always watch from the students view as I am sat amongst the pupils. The authors recommend observing the teacher and question their motives. Why have they chosen this style etc? I'll definitely ask more questions when I go back to work next term. I'm keeping this book until I get my first paid teaching position; it has some tips and further reading on applications and interviews too. The authors have created a very easy read and it is quite motivational.
